First Snow of 2014

Well the weather didn’t waste time ringing in the new year. Our first snow of 2014 arrived last night, giving us about 4-5 inches of snow in the Annapolis area.

First Snow of 2013

At this point in the year, I’m convinced the meteorologists in the Annapolis-Baltimore-DC area are playing jokes on us. This morning I woke up to the first actual snow we’ve had so far this year, despite a number of predictions that resulted in nothing but some rain. By the time I left my house there were already 2-3 inches on the ground, and it’s still falling steadily - all this despite a prediction of some wintry mix at worst for today.

The Washington, DC area is expecting some snow over the next 24-36 hours, and while accumulations won’t be significant (less than 12 inches), it’s likely to cause some disruptions. BGE is pre-positioning assets in preparation for power outages, and local emergency management agencies are setting up shelters and posting preparedness reminders. Annapolis & Anne Arundel County aren’t likely to see more than a few inches so the impact should be minimal, but it’s best to be ready nonetheless.

Hurricane Irene: Live Blogging

Hurricane Irene

Hurricane Irene is coming. It’s gotten lots of coverage, and by the time it reaches my area it’s expected to be a Category 2, transitioning to a Category 1. While Annapolis isn’t on the direct path for the storm, we’re close enough that they’re projecting up to a foot of rain and a storm surge up to 4 feet high, which has the potential to do a lot of damage.
